If you want to stay in Cessnock and be able to easily walk to the shops, supermarkets and club then this is a good choice. But it does enough without giving it the extra edge it needs to push it into the great category.
The rooms are big enough and clean enough but things add up. Yes the showers are abysmal. Stayed here 3 times and tried a different room each time purely on the hope that 1 of the showers works better but alas no. The combination of water saving and deposits building up in the shower heads mean that it is like standing under one of those garden pressure sprayers. You get wet but only just! A cot being left in the room was careless.
But my main bug bear is that on two occasions a coach turned up to pick up daytrippers to the wineries and decided to wait outside the windows of the rooms with its engine running for 15-20 minutes. Both the smell of the fumes and the noise was unbearable. So much so that I decided I would try staying at the Potters around the corner and down the road.
